nz_MyCatalogue helps to create your own parametric library of extrudable profiles

Natale Zappia has developed nz_MyCatalogue, the newest sketchup extension that supports SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017, SketchUp 2018.

 This sketchup extension is very useful for various industries like Architecture, Construction, Education, Engineering, Film & Stage, Gaming, Heavy Civil, Interior Design, Kitchen & Bath, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning, Woodworking etc.

nz_MyCatalogue facilitates the users to make their individual multifaceted parametric library of extrudable profiles.

Alike sketchup, nz_MyCatalogue facilitates to produce profiles ranging from as little input as

Profile Name
Width
Height
or through to the formation of complicated custom profiles

Apart from, it is also possible to add different parameters like:

DIRECTIONAL offset… Spacing elements at selected centers (adjustable to Centerline or Face offset)
LATERAL offset…. Assign spacings among wall elements (adjustable to Centerliine)
VERTICAL offset: eg overhead cupboards (adaptable to top face or underside measurements)
Overall Length limits

Custom colour of your own conception

At any point the parameters can be

overridden
updated or
temporarily created upon selection of the profile.

It is possible to select for each resultant object to either be a
group or
component

eitherway the object has drawn instances containing:
Instance names similar to it’s library name
Similar axes corresponding to the object itself, it signifies that one can simply unite groups while transforming them into components (also refer to nz_ConvertMe).

This sketchup extension is available in extension warehouse extensions.sketchup.com

CAALA – The newest energy analysis plugin for sketchup

CAALA for SketchUp is the newest sketchup extension that is used to perform Energetic pre-dimensioning (life cycle analysis and EnEV calculation) in real time. This sketchup plugin is compatible with SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017, SketchUp 2018. The plugin is only available in German language.

CAALA stands for a software for holistic energetic-ecological pre-dimensioning. CAALA facilitates to analyze the complete lifecycle of a building design in real time (LCA / Life Cycle Assessment).

In this way, buildings are optimized sustainably in the initial planning phase. Besides, it can be measure at an initial phase whether guidelines like EnEV or KfW 55 are achieved or not.

With CAALA, it is possible to measure the energy requirements throughout operation and the gray energy required to manufacture, substitute and eliminate them simultaneously. All applicable parameters like geometry, alignment, materiality and building technology are considered. No training is required due to the impulsive user interface. There are diverse design variants which can be easily analyzed and compared rapidly.

CAALA allows the users to directly calculate how ecological a design is throughout the design process and whether guidelines like the EnEV can be achieved. Numerous variations can be tallied instantly which facilitate superior optimization.

If the decisions are taken in the initial phase of performance, it provides significant effect on both the cost and the energy and environmental performance of a building. CAALA is applied from performance phase 1 and support planning decisions with quantitative results.

As the only SketchUp plug-in for energy analysis, CAALA applies calculation algorithms on the basis of German standards. The energy assessment is accomplished as per DIN V 18599 and the gray energy and other ecological effects are set as per DIN EN 15978. So, the results are utilized for pre-dimensioning regarding EnEV or KfW Effizenzhaus or pre-certification as per BNB or DGNB.

To download the plugin, go to extension warehouse extensions.sketchup.com
